Victory. Triumph. Conquer.
These are some of the words that come to mind when Passover (Easter) comes around every year.
This celebration should and must remind the world of the greatest war ever to be fought. The war that Jesus won. The Victorious King. The Triumphant Son of God. The Conquering Christ!
The Cross. The Grave and The Resurrection.
These were essentially the battle plan. The strategy of heaven defeating death, shame and disgrace.
For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.
So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.
The measure in which we aspire to present ourselves to God as instruments of righteousness, will testify to our conviction of Passover.
God’s grace is sufficient to empower us to become these instruments of glory that God can enjoy and use according to His desire and purpose. Our part is but to choose what we’ll become.
Who will you become?
Our family is on a journey of becoming. And what a great adventure it is walking in rhythm to the heart pounding, gut wrenching, supernatural and love-compelling mission of God.
Day in and day out we seemingly disappear as the greatness of His riches are displayed whilst sending us out to the nations!
We wouldn’t want it any other way.
He prepares. He equips. He provides and He sends. He assists. He empowers. He encourages. He disciplines. He fathers. HE REMAINS.
We trust that the power of His resurrection will be evident in and through our testimony to the glory of His name among all the nations!
Enjoy Passover and be encouraged that the same power that conquered the grave lives in every heart that acknowledges and receives Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
